About Evelyn Duran-Ponce

Evelyn grew up in a family that recognized the importance of eating well for your health.  This led to her journey in nutrition with eventually specializing in diabetes and obesity.  Shortly before her certification in diabetes education her son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes as an infant.   She has experience, both as a mother and a dietitian on what it is like to live with diabetes.


For 25 years Evelyn has counseled her patients and clients on dietary guidelines based on the best available research at the time.  She has found that an emphasis on mostly vegetables, quality animal proteins, healthy fats, avoiding low quality sugars and carbohydrates makes it not only practical to follow but possible to achieve wellness.
